Waking up in the morning for class is a struggle. Are you lucky enough to have an 8 AM class? Square One is an alarm clock that uses a wake-up light to simulate the sunrise, preparing the body to wake up well rested. This bird call alarm clock also uses light therapy by emitting 10,000 LUX, equivalent to light therapy boxes. About 15 minutes before the scheduled wake-up, the LED light panel turns on and gradually increases in light intensity.
Get organized people! iStudiezPro is an app that allows you to input your class schedule and homework into a built-in planner, then alerts you of approaching deadlines, keeps track of your grades, organizes your extracurricular schedule, and counts down to your next class. Oh how we wish it would countdown to the next holiday… or happy hour.
So iStudiezPro doesn’t have a count down to happy hour, but we found the next best thing. DrinkOwl finds all the open liquor stores and bars in your area and lists the specials going on at each location. How awesome is that? Now being dull, dry, or turnt down are no longer options (#turndownforwhat)
